Phonics - Different ways of pronouncing u

 

The letter u can be pronounced as a short vowel sound in words like hut or awful or as a long 'you' sound in words like unicorn.

Have a look at the list of words below and write them down in two lists - one for short sounds and one for long sounds.

English - Sequencing The Snow Queen

Over the next two weeks, we are going to be learning about the story of The Snow Queen.

You can then either try the mild, spicy or hot work below either by printing the sheet out or writing the numbers down on a piece of paper.

Maths - Revising arrays

 

Before Christmas we started to use arrays to represent multiplication facts.

From the website below, look at the lesson 'Make Arrays'.

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/week-12-number-multiplication-division/

 

Can you make some arrays out of some objects (such as lego bricks, buttons, marbles or pencils)?

 

4 x 2, 5 x 4, 3 x 4, 6 x 2, 3 x 5

 

Can you solve the problems in the sheet below?

Geography - Continents and Oceans

 

Find out about the continents and oceans using this site from the BBC:

If you are are able to print at home, there is a choice of two activities to complete below or you can try this interactive test.

 

Mild - Colour the continents and label the oceans.

Spicy or Hot - Label the continents and oceans. You can also colour the continents lightly in different colours.

Wednesday 6.1.21

Phonics - Different ways of saying ow

 

You need lined paper and a pencil for this lesson.

 

Ow can be pronounced differently in different words. In words like window it is pronounced like oa in toad. In words like cow, the two letters make the ow sound.

 

Use this video lesson to sort some words with ow in them. You could also use the optional printable worksheet below to complete this activity off line.

English - Using conjunctions to link ideas

 

You need lined paper and a pencil for this lesson.

 

Yesterday you listened to the story of The Snow Queen. Today you are going to write some sentences about the Snow Queen using conjunctions to link ideas together. You can either watch the video lesson or use at the lesson presentation below to find out about using conjunctions.

 

You then need to choose either mild, spicy or hot from below to create sentences about the Snow Queen that make sense. Remember to write them with capital letters and full stops.

Maths - Drawing arrays

 

You need paper and a pencil for this lesson.

 

Yesterday you went through what an array is again. Today you are going to be drawing arrays. Follow the video lesson or use the lesson presentation to learn how to draw an array to show a times table fact.

 

All of the questions for the lesson are in the video / presentation or you can use the optional printable sheet below.

Computing - Finding out about the Internet

 

The Internet is amazing. You are using it right now to complete your home learning.

 

You can find out more about what the Internet is by looking at this page from BBC Bitesize.

 

Next look at the lesson presentation to find out about what devices can be connected to the Internet.

 

For a learning task, you have a choice of some different challenges:

 

1) If an adult can help you, have a look for which devices around your house are connected to the Internet. Which are connected using a wire and which are wireless and use Wi-Fi?

 

2) Make a list with pictures of at least 5 devices that could be connected to the Internet and 5 that cannot be connected to the Internet.

 

3) This is the most difficult challenge. What things around your house do you think might be fun if they connected to the Internet? Would you like a smart spoon or a smart cup? A few years ago, the idea of a light bulb being connected to the Internet would seem like magic. Draw and label your new Internet connected devices.
